Are you upset about the stupid court ruling? Then tell the NHL teams. I bought tickets to a Dallas Stars home game versus St Louis this year. I'm telling the Dallas franchise that I'm never doing that again, because they won't put a team in Hamilton. Go to the following webpage and find someone to email with your own negative thoughts...
Or send their ticket personel an email here...
Here's the email I sent them...
I bought tickets to the Dallas v St Louis game this year. I will never buy tickets to another Dallas home game until there's an NHL team in Hamilton.Thanks,

One of the NHL teams that is likely against Hamilton having an NHL team is the Buffalo Sabres. Let's stand up to them and tell them that we will not buy Sabres tickets until there's an NHL team in Hamilton. Simply go to there website contact form.
Add your details in the comment form and tell them you refuse to buy Sabres tickets till there's an NHL team in Hamilton. My son is on the SabreKidz Club, so I'll add that tidbit as well. If we put enough pressure on the Sabres, then we can get them to help us bring a team to Hamilton. There's clearly enough fans in the golden horseshoe to support three teams and without us Canadians, the Sabres would have long been relocated (possibly to Hamilton).
If you want a team in Hamilton, then we need to stand up against the people who are truly fighthing this. That's the Toronto Maple Leafs. Again, I'm not asking you to forfeit Leaf tickets as that would never work. Instead, I'm asking you to tell Toronto FC, the soccer team owned by the same MLSE as the Toronto Maple Leafs, that you won't buy tickets until there's an NHL team in Hamilton. Unfortunately, TFC doesn't have any electronic contact method, so the best we can do is put a messages on their Facebook fanpage. Please goto the fan page and write that you won't buy tickets until there's a NHL team in Hamilton.
How do we get a team in Hamilton? Stand up to the NHL. Stand up to the Leafs. I'm not gonna bother asking people to forfeit their Toronto Maple Leafs tickets because that's pointless and I doubt you'd do it anyway. Instead, I'm asking you to hit the Maple Leafs where it might actually hurt; the Raptors. You see, both teams are owned by the same parent company.
I'm asking you to send a message to the Raptors and tell them that you refuse to buy any more tickets to Raptor games until there is an NHL team playing in Hamilton. Go to the following webpage.
Click the Ticket information or Fan mail contact link or BOTH (yes, do both). Their security certificate is invalid, so you might get a warning. Ignore the warning and continue. Submit your name, email and a short message telling the Raptors that you will not buy another Raptor ticket until there's an NHL team in Hamilton.
It's too bad that the media simply reports the lies coming from the NHL about the Coyotes. It wouldn't take much courage to sit there and being laughing at them. Sure the NHL would black-balled you, but you represent integrity. When they report stuff like this, then you should laugh.
Weeks ago, the NHL reported they were not in control of the Coyotes. When the Coyotes declared bankruptcy, the NHL changed their mind and claimed they had taken control of the team from the owners. A month later, the courts disagreed as the NHL couldn't produce the documents they claimed to have.
Then the NHL claimed they controlled the rights to a second southern Ontario team and that this had nothing to do with the Sabres or the Leafs. Yet how many teams have moved in the last 10-20 years? Hartford? Winnipeg? Quebec? Dallas? How many times have we heard rumors of southern U.S. teams moving to Kansas City? Why was it made public that the Leafs would allow a 2nd Toronto team solely if they paid rent at the ACC? Why did some U.S. politicians petition the courts with concerns about the Sabres franchise?
Everybody knows it's just the NHL being the NHL again. Just as they did with Nashville (which is still in trouble). The Trashers are still in trouble. The Leafs gave $millions to the Lightning late (also in trouble) in the season and Bettman didn't seem to have any problem with that blatant circumvention of the NHL rules.
Why does the NHLPA put up with the NHL protecting broken teams at the expense of their revenue share?
I know why! Too many chickens. Nobody with the guts to stand up to Bettman, the Leafs and the Sabres. What we need is someone with the balls to do it. Like Balsillie. He's the solution to the current NHL problem. Let's support him. And let's stand up to the NHL and tell them that we want a team in Hamilton. Let's stand up to the Leafs. Let's stand up to the Sabres.
Here's my final grades on your 2008-09 Toronto Maple Leafs.
We just updated all the AHL rosters for the 2008-09 season.
We've added WWE fan forums for all the popular wrestlers.
I create a couple hundred PGA player girlfriend forums. If anybody is interested.
